This is a very pretty Christmas market, right on the lake. The food choices are great. We enjoyed some classic cheese fondue inside a little hut right on the lake. Delicious, but probably not good for the arteries! It does get very busy as the night goes on though, but at around dusk it was lovely. Combine with a walk... More

A very nice Christmas market. The food and drink are the best part so go hungry! Vin chaud, churros and roasted chestnuts highly recommended. I've heard the tartiflette is delicious as well. Nice wooden houses with fires burning inside to warm you up if it's chilly. And the possibility of free samples in a few places! Very good spot to... More

My Wife and I have visited the Montreux Christmas Market every year now since 2008 and it's a special attraction no matter what. Lot's of eating and drinking and plenty of stalls selling almost everything. We adore it.

We enjoyed to walk along the lake to see this market for the first time. Many places to eat, several places to sit in very charming little bench. We appreciated most of what we saw. Missing a bit more of the christmas atmosphere sometimes but there is a lot to see in a small place. People were nice. The only... More

Great place to visit for an evening. There are a lot of stands and the atmosphere is great. Don't forget to take a ride in the big wheel and there are many stands to have some food after.

A very large Christmas market with stalls selling food, drink,crafts Christmas decorations. A lovely family atmosphere during the day and a great place for a night out with friends in the evening. Prices can be a bit steep this is not a market to come a get a cheap gift but you will find lots of original gifts and crafts.

Me and my boyfriend visited Montreux Noel market for several times. We always had amazing time. The atmosphare is full of Xmas, hot wine, punch, tea with some alcohol. I would say Montreux is not lovely only during Xmas time but also during summer. If you have time on the end of June/beg of July go and visit famous Montreux... More

We caught a train from Geneva to Montreux and went to the Christmas market. It was great for having a relaxed look around and there plenty of gifts to look at. We enjoyed the hot wine and crepes! A short walk from the station, it is easy to find. The mountains make a beautiful backdrop. A very relaxing day out.... More
